Hi all

I just put out my 2box hihat controller for sale on Blocket. Brand new, just tested.

maybe you have some rubber or glue residue between the sensor and the rubber edge ...

I took them apart, and yes there was fragments of rubber inside that had come loose over the years. I cleaned it out, and thought for a while that they worked better.

I think I need to re-phrase my question thus: Which e-cymbals has the most sensitive and reliable edge switches? It's a pity that the usable dynamic range of e-cymbals with edge switches in combination with the drumit3 gets limited to the switch sensitivity.

I'm gonna hijack this thread a bit since I have issues with Yamaha cymbals and edge triggering. I have 2 PCY-135, one PCY-155 and a RHH-135 that I bought used locally. One of the PCY-135 and the PCY-155 work great. The other PCY-135 only triggers edge when hit hard.

I pulled the RHH-135 apart with the intention of turning it into a PCY-135, or replacing the faulty one, only to find it has the same problem, which I suspect has to do with the rim switch. But when analyzing it, the rim switch does work, but the module doesn't register it. I've tried different cables and inputs but the issue remains.
Any thoughts?

So there is no regular mesh head that can be changed when worn out?

Thanks for the review! The rim hotspot is a no-go for me.
Is the rim softer than a regular rim with rubbertrim? Or is it actually a metal rim with rubber on it?

i m getting one this week , i ll try an will tell you ...

Are you ready to give us a review of the pad?

You are not mentioning which pad you use. My guess is that the pad gets compressed by the pressure of the pedal and thus closing the edge switch. Maybe I'm way off though. Just a guess.

Hi all,

I'm considering using an FSR pad for my snare as part of a DIY build. Wondering if someone has an InBox and would like to share the schematic, i.e just a couple of photos of the PCB. I'm guessing it's a very basic circuit. If I were to guess it, it would just be a series resistor for the FSR (current limiting) and maybe a series cap for the output.

Any thought or knowledge on the topic is welcome!

Does anyone on here have experience with the Roland PDX-12? I am looking for a snare pad which has rims that are not as hard as regular acoustic drum rims, since I play rimshots. I do own the Yamaha XP120SD but it actually doesn't trigger all that well with the 2box.

I played around with the hihat calibration again today, the pedal-related issues I had with the 2box hihat was due to using the normal felt washer under the magnet of the hihat. The magnet-base that comes with the 2box hihat must not rest on a felt washer or the like, because that messes up the pedal signal.

The weird sounds I was getting was due to the pad triggering (wrong zone) instead of the pedal. It took a lot of tweaking to get it to work as intended.

All that said, I will go back to using my acoustic hihat.

I got a 2box hihat. Comparing the Yamaha RHH-135 with the 2box, the Yamaha does foot chick / splashes better and is easier to calibrate. Transitioning between levels of opennes seems better with the 2box. I was expecting a bigger improvement. Without having the 2box to compare with, the Yamaha didn't seem completely compatible.

With the Yamaha, you have separate velocity curves for the pedal and the pad. With the 2box, the pedal velocity curve does not affect the splash level, (Edit: it does affect the pedal) which is too loud, and does not trigger well. This is probably due to the pad triggering instead of foot chick, which also explains the weird foot chick sounds I get with the 2box hihat. Maybe this can be solved by lowering the level of the pedal samples when creating the dsnd in the 2box editor.

I find the edges of Yamaha cymbals a bit too soft. The 2box has a harder surface which I personally prefer, but that is actually the only improvement over the Yamaha at this point. (Edit: no hotspot on the 2box hihat, but the Yamaha does)

Unless I manage to improve calibration, I will probably keep my acoustic hihat.

The old ddrum4 hihat is quite superior when it comes to playability, but the sounds are of course limited. Maybe I'll try it via MIDI.

I updated OS too and suspected it affected the hihat...

I think by now it's safe to say that the RHH-135 is incompatible with the drumit3. I took it apart and checked that it wasn't broken, because it responded so bad. Nothing was broken. The Yamaha DTX500 module performs significantly better in combination with the RHH-135.

Edit: It was the firmware version 1.32.4 that caused the problems.
